Meet Shelley Nordlund

Feng shui principles are used to convert the existing energy in your space to your advantage. Like the principles of design, the fundamentals of feng shui work with any look or style preference. Shelley became interested in feng shui as well as a design profession when friends and family asked for help in redesigning their homes “because your home feels so warm and welcoming.”
Shelley regularly attends educational offerings through National Kitchen & Bath Association and Interior Design Society, updating her skills and learning about new products in the trade. Her membership in the International Feng Shui Guild keep her skills fresh and give her an amazing resource of practitioners, should a tricky problem arise.

She recently was inducted into the 2020 Who’s Who in America, and her company received The Seattle 2020 Award for marketing. She has had articles republished in All Things Healing, and has published a series of articles in Maison, an online home magazine with a readership of over 200,000. She is also published in Northwest Asian Weekly magazine. Shelley is quoted in other publications for her expertise on feng shui and interior design. She has been interviewed on an internet program called Business Talk Radio, as well. Her background in teaching make her an excellent planner and worker taking the worry, time, and headaches out of creating a space to meet her clients’ unique needs.
She enjoys walking, whether it is on the sidewalks near home or in the woods of the Northwest. She also enjoys attending music concerts and theatre. She’s an avid Washington Husky fan, attending sports events regularly.
Serving as an Adjunct Professor at Highline College in Des Moines, WA, Shelley taught The History of Design to interior design and art majors in 2017 & 2018. Covering a time period of 900 B.C.E. through today, the course incorporates the development of architecture and design throughout the world.
I grew up in Tacoma, WA, the last of Phil & Marian Nordlund’s three children. I went to CWU and earned a teaching degree, and got a job teaching music for Puyallup School District. I also earned my Master’s Degree while teaching, which honed my skills in communication, writing and presentations. After marrying Randy Jones, we together raised my step daughter, Sarah.
I started exploring Feng Shui in 2000, when I saw a public television program on its powers. When I had completed my initial training, I decided to transform the family gua of my home. My sister and I had been having difficulties getting along, although we had been closer than best friends our whole lives. Hours after I had finished the redecorating, she telephoned me. It was apparent from that moment on that the energy had been shifted, and all was again well with our relationship. Coincidentally, it helped solve a strained relationship with another family member, too!
After leaving teaching, I went back to school and earned my degree in Interior Design. I have served clients as the founder of my own company that combines feng shui with interior design, Transformations for Interiors for well over a decade.
